Battling the bottle one day at a time, ex-cop, sometime PI Matthew Scudder finds that next to staying sober, staying alive seems easy. But in the mean streets of New York City it never is. Not for the prostitute who wanted out and got her beautiful self slashed to ribbons. Not for a pimp named Chance who is betting his life that the broken-down detective can find her murderer. And not for Matthew Scudder—just trying to stay alive in a city that knows nothing better than how to die.

Editorial Reviews

Editorial Reviews

“Superb…An exceptional novel…Remarkably rich in plot, character development, and crackling dialogue.” San Diego Union-Tribune
“Block’s latest novel is both a rousing private-eye story and an extended meditation on the whimsical ways of death—through freak accident, premeditated murder, and self-destruction…A magnificently plotted, sensitive portrayal of two kinds of death—the kind that comes as an intruder and the kind that comes as an invited guest.” Booklist (starred review)
“Lawrence Block writes a tight story. Not a lot of chaff. Scudder stumbles, Scudder falls, Scudder makes mistakes. He’s everyman trying to solve a murder. He is tenacious, amassing clues until he finally figures it out. Once a police officer, Matthew Scudder is a student of police procedure, and finding murderers as a PI (but not really a private detective; he has no license) is the same as finding them as a cop. Without the badge.” Voices.Yahoo.com
“By the end of the last [track], you can’t imagine anyone else impersonating Scudder.” AudioFile
